Xylitol for Dry Mouth

Dry mouth is very common; in fact, many medications can reduce your saliva production. Reach for xylitol-sweetened gum or mints to help battle your dry mouth. You should also avoid caffeine, tobacco and alcohol. If your dry mouth continues to be an issue, seek out your doctor’s advice and review your medications.*

Throughout the day, take a tablespoon of xylitol granules to help deal with dry mouth. Swish the granules around in your mouth to help them dissolve and then comfortably swallow.
